US looks for ways to help educate semiconductor industry employees

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2018-07-20
The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has sent out a questionnaire to the semiconductor industry, its suppliers, trade bodies, equipment manufacturers, educational organisations and others.

Specifically it is asking about:

The types of technical positions for which hiring is most difficult

  • Educational levels at which hiring is most difficult 
  • Expected changes in staffing levels over the next 5 to 15 years 
  • Skill sets that are likely to grow in importance 
  • Things your company is doing to bring people into the tech workforce 
  • Ideas for ways of stimulating semiconductor workforce growth 
  • Thoughts on apprenticeship programs 

The deadline for replies is August 15th,

NIST says the replies  pcould affect government support for the chip industry in providing “enhanced support for K-12, undergraduate, and graduate STEM education (with a particular focus on semiconductor technology), targeted technical training, internship and apprenticeship programs, and cooperative education programs,” according to NIST’s request for information.

The initiative was triggered by President Trump’s 2017 National Security Strategy
